After a few bids and counter-bids, Joe and I were feeling pretty confident that the house was OURS! We went so far as to clean and organize our entire house, taking excess furniture to store at my Dad's and even selling things on Kijiji to de-clutter. We re-grouted tiles, re-painted floors and even vacuumed out the basement rafters. Our house was ready to be sold.
After our final bid, we found out that the (older) couple in the house had decided they were too attached and would not be selling. Needless to say, we were extremely disheartened. So...the search continues for our dream home!
